Dele Sosimi Afrobeat Orchestra Live!


Afrobeat legend and brand new Wah Wah 45s artist, Dele Sosimi, plays his first major headline show since signing with the label. As Fela Kuti's keys player and musical director for both the man himself and his son Femi, this man's place in the genre's history is firmly cemented - now we can look forward to a brand new single, out later this year and a new album out in 2015 on Wah Wah 45s. To celebrate, Dele will be taking to the stage with his full Afrobeat Orchestra, and support comes in the shape of North London based blues, soul and swamp pop outfit The Dirty Gentlemen plus all of your favourite Wah Wah 45s DJs, including Wah Wah founder Chris Goss (Hospital Records). And not only that, Wah Wah will be running the club session following the live show too, with none other than the UK's finest hip hop, funk and soul deck technician DJ Format joining the Wah Wah boys for some good old fashioned party music until the early hours! Unmissable.
